    hmm, something to do with:\[f_{xy}f_{yx}-(f_{xx})^2\] or did i recall that incorrectly?

    \[fx = 2x-3y \] \[fy= 2y-3x\] on solving both equations the point is (0,0) \[fxx = 2\] , \[fyy= 2\] \[fxy = \] \[D = -5 <0 saddle point\]

    \[f(x,y)=4+x^3+y^3-3xy\]\[f_x=3x^2-3y=0\implies y=x^2\]\[f_y=3y^2-3x=3x^4-3x=3x^3(x-1)=0\]\[ x=\{0,1\},y=\{0,1\}\]

    its x^3 so i have (0,0) ,(1,1)and a (-1,1) i am not sure if (-1,1) should be there oor not

    there is no x=-1 solution, I don't see how you get that

    @Avva thanks for ur help but i was wonder abt the max and min points! n\ @TuringTest : 3y^2-3x=0 i sub y=x^2 from other equation so it will be 3x(x^3-1)=0 therefore you have x =0,1,-1 i am not sure abt -1 though !! tht was my question

    x^3=1 does not have x=-1 as a solution since (-1)^3=-1, not 1

    3x(x^3-1)=0 3x=0 -> x=0 x^3=1 -> x=1

    @TuringTest that alrite!! :) so now my question is x^3=1 so will i hv x=-1 if i solve for x ?

    no, again, because \((-1)^3\neq1\) so \(x^3=1\) has only one real solution, x=1 x=-1 is NOT a solution

    @TuringTest oh ok thanks a lot for ur help!! so the final ans will be (0,0 ) is a saddle point and (1,1) will be a local minimum !
